50 Cent

Sued Over Violent Attack

9/20/2011 6:44 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

50 Cent
employs violent known criminals who viciously attack women when they don't get their way ... this according to a new lawsuit.

According to the suit, obtained by TMZ, 50 Cent hired a guy named Dwayne McKenzie -- although it's not clear exactly what McKenzie did for the rapper.  The suit alleges McKenzie invited some women over to 50's mansion in Connecticut.  During the party, McKenzie began making "graphic and vulgar sexual requests" of one woman.

The plaintiff, Vasti Ortiz, apparently became uncomfortable and started to leave.  She claims that's when McKenzie ordered another woman to start beating on her while he held her down ... badly hurting her.

So why is 50 being sued, aside from the fact that he's rich?  Ortiz claims 50 knew or should have known McKenzie was a known criminal who had assaulted in the past.

50 was not present during the alleged attack.

That's not fair, 50 cent wouldn't have any friends if he had to restrict his association from folks who are criminals who had assaulted in the past!!!

I have to wonder whether an actual police report was filed? Did this woman go to an ER after the "alleged" assault occurred? Does she have ANY witnesses who will corroborate her version of this incident? If not, it's simply her word against McKenzie which doesn't make 50 Cent liable for ANYTHING!!! Without a "thorough" investigation, WHERE'S HER EVIDENCE??? She would have to prove that she was, in fact, attacked and didn't initiate the assault, herself. Considering that 50 Cent didn't invite her into his home and wasn't present when the "alleged" attack occurred, doesn't lend much credibility to her story. Perhaps, it's time for 50 Cent to surround himself with people who are "beyond reproach" instead of "mindless" thugs who simply want to ride on his coattails. The "questionable" company you keep will do you in EVERY time!!!
